nobody is taking advantage of working families at the pump. in addition, america is better prepared for supply disruptions than we used to be. today, we use 7% less oil than we did in 2005. even as our economy has grown since then. partly because our economy as a whole is more efficient. we're adapting. we're producing more oil and we're importing less. our automakers, for example, are manufacturing more fuel efficient cars. some that now get more than 50 miles to the gallon. and our consumers are driving more of these cars. in december, democrats and republicans came together to pass a payroll tax cut that is already helping to grow our economy and create jobs. in the wake of rising gas prices, it should also help act as a cushion for working families. this doesn't lessen our commitment to do everything we can to get gas prices down but that tax cut will total about $1,000 for the average working family this year or an extra $80 or so showing up in your paycheck each month and that tax relief package is a key reason that even with these higher prices economists and investors like warre

america competing with china and increasingly iran. we are not in a static situation we have the luxury to say give us a few years and then we will get back in the game. so i think you're caution is a very strong one and i would add this point is al qaeda has a presence in what is called al qaeda and the islamic monrad which is north africa. they had a presence to some extent in libya. they were suppressed like everybody else in libya was suppressed. but there is no doubt in my mind if they see an opportunity just as they saw an opportunity in somalia and they have seen in ghanem they are going to the decanter influence the outcome. so the united states is faced with a choice. we can stand on the sidelines and hope and pray for the best, we can get so involved that we are accused of interfering, going after oleo, chongging to occupy another islamic country where we can try to do what we are doing which is, you know, be smart about how we offer assistance, how we respond and bring the international community along and that is the toughest of the options but that is what we are trying to

down towards hawaii and maybe even toward the south coast of south america but a significant portion of this wave propagating toward the western coast of the u.s. i have seen a 12-inch wave in crescent city become a five foot wave because of the way the crescent beach is shaped. this could happen in any of those beaches along the west coast of the u.s. it's about an hour to an hour and a half away. we know that by the colors of the bands and how many hours it would take. it took about 7 1/2 hours from the quake and the disturbance to get to hawaii. if you look at the lines, that's another hour to get to about van kurve and maybe an hour and a half to get to seattle, portland, and then all of those coastal cities up and down the oe east coast a lot of sirens are going off on the west coast. that means you must get to higher ground. i know a five foot wave doesn't sound like much but when it comes on shore from charleston to crescent city at 7:23 a.m. and san francisco 8:00 pacific standard time two hours away but you have time. when that five foot wave comes on shore it has so much fo
